Patient : I am a 53 yo woman that is in perimenopause. My last period was 6 months ago. For the past few weeks, I have been feeling crampy and bloated, as if I was going to get my period but, I haven't. Is this normal? My concern is ovarian cancer as my mom had ovarian cancer which was caught early and from which she survived. She passed away last year but not from cancer. I have an appointment next week with my gyn but am nervous while waiting. In the past, I have had endometrial biopsies and transvaginal us because of my mom's history but haven't had either in 3 years. Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks for your help.
